ystem: Wrongly imprisoned, but finally compensated

 


In 2006 and 2007, each of us faced the worst day of our lives. We stood convicted of horrible crimes that we did not commit.

In fact, no crimes had occurred at all, yet juries found us guilty in three separate, unrelated trials.

The pain in our hearts was more than anyone should have to bear as judges sentenced us each to lengthy prison terms that we would serve, separated from our partners, children, parents and loved ones.
